  • Joseph H. Miller House (The Beeches) (Ed Wright)

This large, frame Queen Anne house, standing tall on a bluff overlooking the Ohio, still maintains its original form and detail. A square tower on one end of the facade balances a gabled polygonal bay on the other, while an expansive porch with spindle frieze extends across the front. Joseph H. Miller, a local entrepreneur, was commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service under President Grover Cleveland.
